Madonna - Like a Prayer RIAA Certified Multi-Platinum! Click here to see this CD at!

By Steve Gdula

Considered by many to be the Material Girl's most mature effort of the '80s, Like a Prayer upped the ante of controversy with its gospel-infused title track and the singer's emotional confessions throughout. It also unveiled the hit "Express Yourself," which ushered in the era of Madonna as a "stainless steel sexual icon." Musically, Prayer showcased her burgeoning songwriting prowess, with the beautiful "Oh Father" and the perky pop of "Cherish." Besides a throw-away collaboration with Prince ("This Is Not a Love Song"), the CD stands as one of her strongest works, eschewing the strong dance beat influences from her past--she saved that for the remixes--and concentrating instead on melody and structure. Like a Prayer also gave a hint of things to come with the delightful "Dear Jessie" displaying a maternal side worthy of her navel.

"I actully grew to like the Prince Duo. Only duo she's done. The throw out track would have too be Keep it Together/Act. [Editor's note: As a big time Prince fan at the time, I can tell you that it was a great disappointment (Superstars Prince and Madonna on the same song in 1989? What could possibly go wrong?) to fans of either artist. I can also tell you that I listened enough times to it to like it a little, but oh what a missed opportunity!]"


"[The title track] was a great song and video I had a young son at the time I could relate."
